It IS an awful shame that Moira and Grove are clashing again in 2013, as they're 2 of my favourite festivals. Hopefully they will be able to stop clashing in future years!

But we will definitely be going to Moira in 2013!

Really like both Grove WHFF and Moira and hate not being able to do both.

I've therefore decided that I will alternate year by year. Therefore, as I was at Moira in 2012, I will be at White Horse Fest. in 2013.

please keep my name on the Stewarding list though.

I agree that it is a shame about the clash with White Horse Folk Festival. One of the organisers from White Horse came to the early Moira Furnace Folk Festivals when Moira was on the third August weekend and White Horse on the 4th. Moira have remained with the 3rd weekend but now, it would appear that White Horse have moved to the 3rd weekend as well!

I'm afraid clashing is the bane of an organisers life. A major factor for the smaller festivals is catering for the hard core followers. WHFF and Moira are a classic case, many who go to either really want to go to both. Dave E's answer of alternating is one solution. But this means that the fun chat about what happened last year, is meaningless; who talks about the year before last?

Early planning and chat between organisers, including the big boys, is surely the only way this can be sorted. The idea of hanging on to a specific weekend might have to be relaxed, you just tell us when it's on, we'll be there.
Is this not part of the idea behind AFO (the Association of Festival Organisers for those across the pond)?

P.S. We will be at Moira, sorry again Dave.

re dates
August 2010 and 2011 they were a week apart (I was at both) because the way they follow the weekends in that month.

2012, 13, 14, there is effectively one less weekend and they get pushed together. Grove moves between the second and third weekend depending on this as it seems to be based on what day the month starts while Moira seems to be based on being the weekend before the Bank holiday
next one without a clash is 2015
i love both festivals

when it works out i can do Sidmouth Dartmoor Grove Moira and Towersey all in one month 8-)

Not sure how you have worked this out cllr but there are in fact 5 weekends in August in 2014!

The date of the festival is also not related to the Bank Holiday.

Irrespective of the number of weekends in August, the festival committee has decided that Moira Furnace Folk Festival will be held on the third weekend in August so the 2014 festival will be on 115th, 16th and 17th August.

Moira in 2009 was the fourth weekend in August as the fifth weekend was a bank holiday weekend monday being the 31st


there are indeed five weekends in august in 2014 but the last weekend is not the bank holiday the 31 is the sunday the point being

all the moira festivals so far are the week before the bank holiday (so far) and all the whitehorse festivals are the following week after Sidmouth finishes

Sidmouth dates are always from the first Monday in August which is why sometimes the start of Sidmouth festival friday is in July and other times the first friday is in August


Moira 2010 was technically the third weekend but effectively the fourth as the first of august was a Sunday (depends if you say a weekend is just the saturday or if it has to include the Sunday as well)

in 2011 the first Monday from when Sidmouth runs was 1 August which meant

that White horse ran on the second and Moira was on the third weekend

2012 clashed so will 2013 and 2014 as i previously said

unless one festival changes its date, the next year where they won't clash will be 2015

moira has so far always been the weekend before the bank holiday
whitehorse/grove is always the weekend that follows a week after the final friday of Sidmouth.

if its irrespective of when it falls, i hope the committee stick to the current pattern in 2015
as Whitehorse/grove will be 14 15 16 August and Moira will be 21 22 23 so i can do both again- which is exactly the same as the 2009 dates

warmest regards cllr

I've generally found that WHFF starts a week after Sidmouth finishes, so clashes with the start of Whitby when there are 4 Mondays in the month but not when there are 5 Mondays in August. Moira always seems to have started the same weekend as the start of Whitby.

As I have already stated a decision has been made by the Moira Furnace Folk Festival committee to hold future festivals on the third weekend of August.

When the Bank Holiday is does not have any relevance to the decision.

2014 will be 15th, 16th and 17th August.

2015 will be 21st,22nd and 23rd

2016 will be on 19th, 20th and 21st

2017 will be on 18th, 19th and 20th

Cheers

Only 2 weeks more to wait for the best festival of the year! Here's hoping the weather stays good, if just a little cooler.

Ours too, Green Man - Bringing more people this time too :-)

Anyone got a concert running order yet? Don't get me wrong - The whole line up is good - but there are some artists I want to make double sure I see.

Cheers

Don't forget to come to the MudGather, upstairs in the Railway PH on Saturday from 4-6pm. There may be chocolate.....

Safe journeys everyone, see you there!

Wow, looks like I'm the first one home and (more likely) geeky enough to be checking in!

Another absolutely wonderful weekend!!! Don't see how, but it just keeps getting better each year. Thanks so much to all who organised and ran this years festival, as well as all the performers (both the "official" ones and those who sang/played at the sessions).

And thanks also to MGAS for another nice mudgather. 2 hours just isn't enough time for all that music and chocolate.

Next year already on the calendar, and will be ready when the tickets go on sale in November. Looks like a great line-up again.

Thanks to Acorn4 for that last link, the drop-down finds so many at Moira.

Talking to Drew and others, so many festivals covered with good quality. Peter Simmonds and the Team do justice with these professional clips.

One of the best with good quality sound has to be our Guru, Hilary Ward on 'Where Ravens Feed' no. 28. All bias and favouritism intended :-)

Thanks for your kind words Richard, you've earned some Brownie Points *grin*

Another fantastic Moira! I originally thought that the very First Moira was the Best, very reminiscent of Miskin, but this festival just gets better and better every year. Huge thanks to the Committee and all the Volunteers and Stewards who worked so hard to make it such a wonderful weekend. This is a great festival to catch up with old friends & make new ones!!

We had a pretty bad journey up on Friday, arriving to set up the caravan just an hour before my first set but Moira soon had me chilled out enough to enjoy singing in the main tent. I thoroughly enjoyed singing at Moira again and it was great to hear everyone singing with me, there were some wonderful harmonies.

I have to say that the Landlady at the Railway PH was absolutely marvellous once again, a real asset to the Festival. We were there for the MudGather and a couple of late evening sessions and she was very hospitable, what a lovely Lady! Loved the Faggot sandwiches....

Once again we had a good attendance at the MudGather despite so much else going on at the Festival site. Thanks to all who came and sang, hugged, chatted, laughed, brought chocolate and ate speckledy cake & chocolate. Here's the Register:

My thanks to all the organisers too. As old Mt Grace used to say "You've all done verrrry well!" :-)

Took someone who has not done a folk festival before - She said she is bringing friends next year too. My daughters will probably also join us as they are huge fans of Blackbeard's Tea Party.

Cheers
